The Studio

 

where you'll Uncover

Your Creative Style

Are you tired of searching for great classes and real community all over the internet? 

 

"I built The Studio so that all the classes, resources, and community that you need to uncover your creative style is all in one place, with new lessons delivered to your inbox every single week."

 

~Liz Kohler Brown

Here is how we'll uncover your creative style...

50+ Classes

500+ Resources

The growing collection of classes on iPad illustration, surface design, lettering, and passive income for artists will show you all the creative paths to choose from, and let you try them on for size.

Live Studio Sessions & Critiques

Every month we have one Studio Session and one Studio Critique where members can draw together in a live-tutorial setting and get advice about their creative goals, artwork, and strategy.

The Studio Community

In this private (and super-active!) member's forum you can share your work, ask questions, and connect with other artists and designers around the world.

Studio Chats with Experts & Members

In these chats you'll hear from both professional artists and designers, and Studio Members of all levels in one-on-one chats with me.  All members can apply for a chat where we can discuss your style, goals, and questions.

Is The Studio for you?

 

‚ú¶ Are you stuck in a creative rut, where you perpetually sample other styles rather than finding your own?  

‚ú¶ Do you feel like your patterns look like everyone else’s? 

‚ú¶ Are you looking for answers to questions about running a successful print-on-demand shop?

‚ú¶ Do you wonder how some designers create a recognizable style that helps them sell their work?

‚ú¶ Are you having trouble "cracking the code" on how to get started with art licensing?

 

If so, then The Studio is where you'll find answers to all of your burning questions!

What are 

Studio Sessions?

 

  • For these (live and recorded) sessions, I plan a project and provide some inspiration and resources like reference images, Procreate brushes, or pattern templates. 
  • These are relaxed, informal sessions where you can follow along as closely (or as loosely!) as you like, feeling free to ask questions and show your work-in-progress as we create together.
  • I will be creating in either Procreate or Affinity Designer, but you can use any app or medium you like.
  • The projects are based around trending themes and formats, and special requests from Studio Members.

What are

Studio Critiques?

  •  
  • ‚ú¶ Studio Members have the opportunity to share their work with me via their social profiles, websites, or image files to get feedback.
  •  
  • ‚ú¶ We get together in a live call and talk about ways to grow and improve.  It's okay if you can't come to the live session though as I'll still review your work in the call.
  •  
  • ‚ú¶ You could ask for specific advice, for example, "How can I get started with art licensing?" or ask a more general question to help guide your path like "Which style should I be focusing on right now?".

What are 

Studio Chats?

 

  • In these recorded one-on-one chats I sit down with either a member of The Studio for a "member chat" or a professional artist/designer for an "expert chat".
  • In the member chats, I work with a member of The Studio to establish a plan for achieving their goals.  We troubleshoot things that aren't working, and develop a clear plan for moving forward without uncertainty.
  • In the expert chats, I ask designers and artists who are successfully selling their work about their path, strategies, and "industry hacks".  These are a favorite of Studio Members!
  • Recent Chats include:
    • Getting Your Work Into the World with Peggy Dean
    • Watercolor and Digital Art with Amarilys Henderson
    • Licensing From the Ground Up with Shannon McNab
    • Mindy Young aka Indybloomdesign on Spoonflower Success and Licensing

"I just loved the simplicity and beautiful results from the block print live class. It took a while to get used to the Linocut brushes, but was worth the practice. This is the beginning of my Stella Maris, Star of the Sea collection."

"I love using the layouts, thanks so much for this class and resources. I can't imagine going back to my old pattern method of just winging it. I'm so much happier with these patterns that look/feel better organized."

Marisa Gulli

"Thank you so much for taking the time to review my Zazzle shop in your POD series! I learned so much! Your POD series has been so helpful...now I just need to implement what I've learned!"
